Leith Hill Tower, Leith Hill, Dorking, Surrey, RH5 6LX
Enjoy one of the most spectacular views in South East England. At over 1000ft above sea level, the battlements on top of Leith Hill Tower offer panoramic views second to none. Use the free telescope to see landmarks of Inner London including The Shard, while turning to the south there is an extensive view to the South Downs ridge and the English Channel beyond. Make some time to walk one of the four guided trails then reward yourself with some hot and cold food and drinks from the servery. Free panarama leaflet and pencil for children. Visit the information room and learn more. Meet Richard Hull and understand why he built the Tower in 1765, and where he now lies. Den building area and trees to climb close to Tower.
This event took place in September 2013 and the entry is now archived.
Disabled parking by prior arrangement. The view is still great at the bottom of the Tower. The Tower has nearly 100 steps so is not wheelchair or buggy accessible. No toilet at all.
Parking at Starveall Corner car park (RH5 6LU) on Abinger Road is the easiest walk up to the Tower. Map link.
